I’m sure you can’t begin to guess where I was lingering this week? Does Preston Park Museum ring any bells? I thought I might do the Winter Garden and the Victorian Street separately- you know, big finale!- but I didn’t want you tiring of the subject. So we’ll just take a quick peep in the conservatory before moving swiftly on.
There weren’t any comfy seat pads on the chairs and the doors were firmly closed, so I took the hint and kept walking. And this was my reward!
A few of the shops don’t qualify for this post. The blacksmith didn’t have a window, as such- just lots of tools. I wandered into the printers and a very nice young lady was setting up the press to print some cards. She was well bundled up against the cold, as she needed to be with the door wide open. I couldn’t photograph her cheerful smile as it was a little dark in there.
I know what some of you are waiting for. I saw this sign but couldn’t find anywhere to buy an alcoholic drink, though I looked very hard.
But you know what I forgot to take a photo of? The Victorian sponge sandwich on the counter. You’ll just have to take my word for it that it was very nice. Just in case you’ve missed any of my Preston Park Museum posts, you can find them here, and here, and here. Understatement- that’s what I’m going for!
Meanwhile I wonder what kind of windows everyone else is showcasing this week. Find them at Dawn’s The Day After. I believe she’s gone all romantic this week.
